Nearly dead violet - is it possible to save it?

Hello,
My neighbor was cleaning out her house today and gave me some plants that she hasn't been taking care of. One is an african violet, without any flowers, that hasn't been watered in ages. The soil is completely dry and shrunken back from the edges of the pot. However, a few center leaves are still fairly green. Would it be possible to bring this back now that the soil has dried out completely, or is it beyond hope?

water it and see what happens. . .I bet you can save it. I've read you should just start with a little water though, not a big drenching - the roots won't be ready to take on that much water.
